To be clear, I don't object to making whatever developers and API
SIG members feel are sane filtering choices service-side, it's just
that I think the VMT will consider those security hardening patches
and not vulnerability fixes. If Horizon or any other consuming
application fails to properly sanitize data before performing
potentially unsafe actions with it, that's a vulnerability and would
generally warrant an official security advisory.
